English translation

it Himmel in den Blicken
Beautiful Friendship is standing here,
steht sie, die schöne Freundschaft, da,
heaven in her gaze,
ihr Busen wallt Entzücken,
A joyous tumult in her breast,
sie opfert ihr Halleluja.
she offers up her Alleluia.
Des Freundes Wonnefeste
At her friend’s feast of joy
klopft hoch ihr Herz voll Biedersinn,
her heart beats with delight.
auf Flügeln sanfter Weste
Her prayer and her incense rise
schwebt ihr Gebet und Weihrauch hin.
on the wings of smooth western winds.
